Palomar to Oklahoma!

Some of you have had the pleasure of meeting our oldest granddaughter.  Here she is a few years ago after lunch at Mother’s Kitchen.  We have a delightful time playing dress up.

She is dressing up again and is in the play “Oklahoma”, opening on September 3rd at Kit Carson Park in Escondido.  But that is not all!  When she went for her audition, someone recognized her Popi. Knowing Brandon sings and has been on stage in the past, he auditioned and got the part of Jud Frye.

A few days later, he called for a source to buy good boots to wear in the show. He is a couple inches taller than his dad and wears a bigger size.  Well, I looked out the window at Don’s boots sitting on our patio.  That old cowboy told me those boots had always been too big and he’d ordered new ones that just arrived.  It so happens they were the perfect size 14 for ole Jud to wear.  So, the boots in the show have Palomar dust and have ridden many miles chasin’ cows ’round this mountain.

Brandon plays Jud September 3rd, 8th and 10th. The other three dates, September 2nd, 4th, and 9th he is in the chorus and tap dances and sings.

That cutie in the red dress, Kiki, is in all 6 shows, singing and dancing with a 25 piece orchestra!  Pre-sale tickets are half price – $15.00 from a cast member but double that at the door. All tickets are general admission, any seat, any date.

Yes, we’ll be there several times and would love to have you join us.

Here is the website:

Just let me know and we’ll see you at the show!


  1. Bonnie, your grandaughter is beautiful!!😍

    • Thank you Gail. That girl has so much sparkle and joy! I do think she has her Grandma’s smile… well, at least her earrings!

  2. Think we will go one of the nights.

  3. I love it, Bonnie. What a great story. I might actually be there, as am coming to SD. XOXO
